Enjoy by 12.21.12
Bottled 11.16.12, exactly 10 days old
Poured from a bomber to a pub style 16 oz glass
A- Amber, 1/2" bubbly off white head
S- Intensely floral, dank, earthy, spicey, as it warms i also get citrus, mango, & apple cider
T- Follows the nose, plus grapefruit bitterness, caramel bready malts, and slit alcohol twang
M- Oily, low carbonation, pleasing alcohol heat
O- I'm loving this brew! There's so much going on here and as it warms, i'm offered more and more aromas and flavors. Fresh out of the fridge, i'm adorned by floral, dank, earthy, spicy, hops. The taste is much the same with an added bonus of grapefruit bitterness and a slit alcohol twang that melds nicely. As it warms, citrus, fruit, and sweet malts become more apparent. Citrus and mango show up to the party with sweet bready malts as their entourage. All this comes together with an alcohol twang that melds perfectly with the rest of the flavors and leaves a tingling feeling at the back of the throat, spiciness lingers on my lips long after it's gone. If i had to compare it to anything i would say Drake's Aroma Coma. Both show light on a new evolution of west coast IPA's. A glorious future is yet to come.
